A day off wasn’t enough for quarterback John Beck’s injured groin to fully heal. He sat out team drills during the Redskins’ practice on Monday morning, and his status for Friday’s preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers is in doubt.
“It’d be nice if it didn’t happen, but now it’s just make sure it doesn’t get worse,” Beck said after practice. “That’s the big thing.”
Beck’s injury isn’t believed to be serious, and whether he can fully participate in practice is being evaluated on a daily basis. Still, it temporarily saps some of the intrigue from his competition for the starting job against Rex Grossman.
